The Neuroscience of Learning in Montessori with Julia Volkman – Webinar

May 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

 Is the Montessori approach aligned with the teachings of neuroscience? How can we use the teachings of neuroscience and Montessori to make learning inherently enjoyable and accessible for all our students? This interactive, lively session will connect educational practice with the science behind plasticity, dynamic development of skill, stress, emotions, and more. This information is applicable to lifelong brain health as well as learning.
